Car Description:
This is my 2004 Subaru Forester xt, "Shelia 2.0" or 2.0 for short. This is a reincarnation of a pervious car I owned, stripped the that car down to bare shell and started hunting for a new one. I found one, with a engine on its last legs, misfires on cylinder 1,2, and 4 maf senor issues, among other engine related problems that couldn't be fixed. This new forester just so happened to be the same color as my old one, but with a slight upgrade to the "premium" trim package. Which included heated full leather front seats, full leather rear seats, and massive moon roof. The body was in better condition as well, which was a plus for me since I hadn't been able to get a lot done to the other one. I began the rebuild process which took about a month, with scheduling, and other set backs that didn't stop me, simply just extended out the time frame of getting everything finished. My friends and I pulled the bad engine, swapped in my engine, which besides most of my aftermarket parts was the other major part I was able to save from my wreaked forester. Had the car back together, and everything swapped over, and driving since October of last year. It was a long four and a half months of bumming rides and fixing the car along the way. And here we are current day.
